I'm searching for the descendants of Elmer Ellsworth GEORGE, born 23 November 1892 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, or at least his final resting place.
He was the son of Wendell GEORGE, b. Nov. 1859, Philadelphia, and Blanche C. HORTON, b. 11 Sept. 1871 in Philadelphia, d. May 1945, buried Biloxi, Mississippi.
The parents of Wendell were Elizabeth HORTON of Rhode Island, and Israel Lewis GEORGE of Pennsylvania.
The parents of Blanche were Daniel HORTON, of Bridgeton, New Jersey,(son of Daniel HORTON and Betsey LEWIS, both of Massachusetts) and Lucy Ann CRISSY, daughter of John and Elizabeth CRISSY, all of Philadelphia.
I'm unsure about Elmer Ellsworth George and where he lived, when he died, and his descendants. I know he lived at least to adulthood. I have a picture of him with his father Wendell here:
The only notation on the picture gives their names and says "of New Jersey".
On the 1900 Census, Wendell and Blanche, along with their children were living in Newark, New Jersey. In 1907, they were in Pensacola, Florida, giving birth to their assumed youngest child, Blanche George. Blanche's mother and sister were living in Pensacola. In 1910, I can't find Wendell and Blanche nor any of their children on the census.
It's known that Blanche later married a man named WALLACE. She is known to have been in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Nothing is known of Wendell since 1907.
The difficulty in finding Elmer is that there are several people named Elmer Ellsworth GEORGE born within a few years of the date on his birth certificate. I'd appreciate any help in locating him in old records and possibly finding his descendants. Can anyone help?
